EASTER, EGO & ENLIGHTENMENT - A Hidden Message
Many will soon be celebrating Easter and although the Easter eggs are a great incentive to get into it, beneath the superficial commercialism lies potent esoteric wisdom.
Regardless of your faith system, a committed spiritual seeker has much to learn from this significant ancient celebration. The crucifixion of Jesus allegorically has so much to offer all in their mission towards embodying divine consciousness.
I grew up Orthodox Christian but the seeker led me on a winding journey to explore most faith systems. I value that learning so much now. It was a time of many questions, much confusion and magnificent realisations.
It was nothing short of life-changing but more importantly, it was soul awakening and tremendously instrumental in equipping me with a small resource of understanding to enable me to serve as a spiritual guide in a much more grounded and universal way. The beauty of comparative religious and philosophical teachings is that it offers you such an incredible insight into the core practical teachings of world faith systems that are often overlooked.
I was open-minded and thirsty to know more, dig deep and find my spiritual base. This led to many trials and errors of various practices until I found a spiritual home that resonated with my soul that would offer me the necessary scaffolding to allow me to truly spiritually evolve.
After a long winding road, I returned to look within and come to understand things from a much deeper and broader perspective. I saw the interconnectedness of beliefs and specifically learnt to appreciate what true spirituality is about.
I also realised that there are many pathways up a mountain but if you keep searching for a path then you’re never truly climbing the mountain-you’re just skipping around it. I spent years spiritually ‘free-floating’ amongst other wandering souls. This was a time of spiritual exploration that was quite dangerous spiritually speaking. I was vulnerable to believing in things that made me compromise myself energetically and I was the perfect candidate for many practitioners that took advantage of my fears.
Over time, I learnt to really appreciate the sacredness surrounding various mythologies, creationist stories and historical events but one particular event really seeped into my cells and that was the story of Jesus' transfiguration, crucifixion and resurrection. No matter what your faith system or beliefs the crucifixion is something each spiritually awakened person must metaphorically endure in their inner and outer world in order to let go of our shadows, our pride, our ego, our greed, our need to be accepted. We must stand solid in our faith and LIGHT. We must not allow the world to frighten us
